All this place had was a past; no pres- ent, and fromthe looks of it, no future. Then Mayor White's vision set in and he assembled a great team of folks and made some magic of this dying tombstone and brought it back to life in the V0s. It confi_nues very much alive today. Today, Faneuil Hall Mar- ketplace is one of Boston's top tourist attractions and in the process has' kept a dying Downtown from imploding. Tourists flock to Boston be- cause we are a city of history, a city of charm, and a city of vision. Faneuil Hall Marketplace has become an urban gem. It showcases Boston as being a great destination for folks from across the country and around the world. When Mayor Marty Walsh looks out of that 5m floor win- dow at City Hall, the first image he sees is that statue of Mayor Kevin H. White rushing some- where with his coat over his shoulder. Where's the mayor rushing to? Well, I think this running statue of Kevin White shows that White never stopped trying to get Boston moving again from the sluggish '50s and early '60s. He was run- ning into the 21st century as far back as 1968. In 1976, he moved even closer into that future. Personally, I don't think that statue in Adams Square of White does him justice; it should be taller.
